Alvin Gentry Rumors
Brett Dawson: Alvin Gentry and Darren Erman both spoke to Yabusele afterward. He said they told him he had a good workout and talked some about defense.
Contacted Saturday, Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said he was stunned by Dejean-Jones’ death and his players, including Anthony Davis, took the tragic news hard. ”We were looking forward to working with him this summer and see where he could go with us as a player,” Gentry said. ”One of the last games he played with us, he had 17 points and had nine rebounds against the Lakers (Feb. 4). I just thought he was aggressive as a player and he was getting better.”
New Orleans Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry will be joining general manager Dell Demps to help scout players during the NBA Draft combine that began on Wednesday in Chicago. Gentry was forced to skip the opening day of the combine to attend his induction into the Boys & Girls Clubs of Alumni Hall of Fame on Wednesday night at the Hilton Riverside hotel. Gentry was inducted, along with seven other members, which included LSU President F. King Alexander and comedian JB Smoove.
”We’re going to look at all kind of angles in the draft. It’s always that thing about we’re going to take the best player and in this case we’ll probably look at situations whoever we feel is the best player that’s who we will take,” Alvin Gentry said.
